How can I enable and turn the Bluetooth device on on my laptop Thinkpad X220


I just bought a new Thinkpad 220 and I'm unable to use the Bluetooth device.

I get the following error: "Bluetooth Device not found.. please verify that your bluetooth  device is properly connected and turned on".


How do I enable the Bluetooth device?


To check if the Bluetooth is enabled, perform the following checklist:


1. Press the Fn + F5 key to check if the Bluetooth radio is turned on

2. Check if Bluetooth is enabled in the BIOS. To enter BIOS, press the F1 key at startup


If the Bluetooth is enabled in the above steps but the device is still not working,  try uninstalling and re-installing the Hotkey, Power Manager  and Power Management drivers.


Tip: For Fn-F5 to turn on the Bluetooth (or any of the wireless cards), both Hotkeys and the Power Management Driver have to be installed correclty.
